Greek Isles

We choose this cruise as I always wanted to go to Greece. We have sailed with Crystal many times. Initially we were ending up in Instanbul. They changed that as the cruise line deemed it not safe. The CEO of ...

Great Food; Not Disability Friendly

The food was amazing each dish was a beautiful creation. The staff was kind accommodating and always ready to say yes. The entertainment was mundane except for the piano bars which were great. Perfect ...

Still readjusting to normal life after leaving Chrystal Symphony a few days ago. We had the most wonderful time as first time cruisers, I can't imagine cruising with anyone else. We had done our research and ...

The Quality is Crystal Clear

This pair of back-to-back cruises were our 2nd and 3rd cruises. Ever since we cruised on Crystal Serenity in 2014, we have been hooked on Crystal. Symphony is a little smaller so it is a little more intimate too. ...

Had a nice time, a little disappointed in the ship.

I went on this cruise with a group of girl friends and we had a very good time. However, I will say that the ship was a big disappointment for me. Crystal is supposed to be nicer than the standard large cruise ...
